    Thumbs up Mages can be great at something, AOE damage

    i have found an excellent build that tops the AOE damage charts. I have had excellent success with this build so far, and haven't seen any other calling come close to matching the amount of damage i can put out with this. please feel free to make any suggestions, but try it out for yourselves and tell me that it isn't awesome.

    rotation:
    1. Burning Ground
    2. Hailstorm
    3. Lightning Storm
    4. Burning Ground (it will be off cool down already)
    5. Lightning Field x2
    6. Forked Lightning +Lightning field
    7. Burning Ground
    8. Forked lightning + Lightning Field x2
    9. Hailstorm + Burning ground (hailstorm should come off cool down first)
    10. Lightning Storm

    the important things to remember is that Lightning Storm puts electrified on ALL of your targets, and Lightning field will take them off. Also if you cast 2 Forked Lightnings the effect of Charged Field will take 2 stacks off, because the effect bounces away, and bounces back. so it is just best to use either use forked lightning 3 times or once, never twice.

    i haven't messed with aoe builds much. i probably should since you can easily switch back to single target dps on bosses.

    Exactly who thinks that DPS on trash AoE pulls is important?

    Worthless thread.

    Ever been to Expert mode dungeons?

    It's 90% trash. Big, fat sacks of reeking trash. My time is actually rather important to me.

    you are 100% right on that one. i do expert dungeons every single day as I'm still building my plaque gear up. if you can do great AOE damage it says quite a bit about your contribution to a group. especially when large groups of 7 or more will destroy your tank if not quickly taken care of.
